In this paper, we describe an efficient method for audio matching which performs effectively for a wide range of classical music. The basic goal of audio matching can be described as follows: consider an audio database containing several CD recordings for one and the same piece of music interpreted by various musicians. Then, given a short query audio clip(More)
We present an efficient and robust multiscale DTW (Ms-DTW) approach to music synchronization for time-aligning CD recordings of different interpretations of the same piece. The general strategy is to recursively project an alignment path computed at a coarse resolution level to the next higher level and then to refine the projected path. As main(More)
One major goal of structural analysis of an audio recording is to automatically extract the repetitive structure or, more generally, the musical form of the underlying piece of music. Recent approaches to this problem work well for music where the repetitions largely agree with respect to instrumen-tation and tempo, as is typically the case for popular(More)

In this paper, we present a procedure for automatically synchronizing scanned sheet music with a corresponding CD audio recording, where suitable regions (given in pix-els) of the scanned digital images are linked to time positions of the audio file. In a first step, we extract note parameters and 2D position information from the scanned images using(More)
In the last few years, several algorithms for the automatic alignment of audio and score data corresponding to the same piece of music have been proposed. Among the major drawbacks to these approaches are the long running times as well as the large memory requirements. In this paper we present an algorithm, which solves the synchronization problem(More)
